Afenifere to NASS: Treat women equally, fairly in constitutional amendment


The Pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, on Sunday urged the National Assembly to recognise the role of the female gender in the society as their male counterpart in the constitutional amendment.

 The group also advised the National Assembly to consider the issue of indigeneship as a very serious issue in Nigeria.

According to Afenifere, “What is desirable is residency right as is the case in countries we look up to such as the United States of America, Europe and the like.”

Commenting on the issue of a constitutional amendment, the spokesman for Afenifere, Jare Ajayi in a statement in Ibadan on Sunday said “Afenifere is very much in support of women in the country being treated equally and fairly as their male counterparts.”

 He however called on the lawmakers to ensure that in the amendment concerning indigeneship, a proviso was not inserted in the Constitution that would surreptitiously make non-natives to supplant the indigenes of a particular space in the country.
